- Failure to Provide Every Resident an Environment Free of Accident Hazards and Provide Adequate Supervision to Prevent Avoidable Accidents – citation #F689 date April 19, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to provide adequate supervision and assistive devices necessary to prevent accidents.” The investigation involved to residents “observed during transfers utilizing a sit-two-stand lift. The failure to transfer the resident safely place the residents at risk of and accident or injury.
Surveyors observed two Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) in April 2018 assisting a resident from the back chair to the toilet using a sit to stand lift. During that time, the resident “was unable to hold onto the padded handle due to a right-hand contracture.”
During the transfer, “the harness sling slid of the resident’s back to the axilla area causing the resident’s right shoulder to shrug upward and the elbow to the bow outward.” The resident’s “ability to safely transfer with a sit-two-stand lift was limited due to a stroke and contracture.”
The surveyors reviewed the resident’s annual MDS (Minimum Data Set) Assessment and Current Care Plan that show that the resident “has in activities of daily living self-care performance deficit related to dementia, evidenced by [the inability] to completed cares.” The resident requires a staff of one and the use of a lift.
The surveyors determined that the Certified Nursing Assistants “failed to position the harness sling 2 to 3 inches below the underarm and to tighten the safety buckle while transferring the resident.”
